Return of the Re'em
re'em is described as a huge cattle-like creature with magnificent, upwards-pointing horns. This is the aurochs - the wild ancestor of domestic cattle. It's challenging to display one in a museum, because they have been extinct for four hundred years! But thanks to artist Tom Hammond we are able to display this amazing life-size reproduction of a re'em.
Meanwhile, here's a riddle: During the course of Shabbat, how many times do we mention the re'em?
(And watch out next week, when there will be a very special announcement!)
